It is that way because the Sooner program is as vibrant today as it was 50 years ago. We’re proud of our history, but we don’t rest on our laurels. Our focus is squarely on the next championship.

Success here creates a hunger for more - more success on the field, more success in the classroom and more success in life away from football. And the people here ask the right questions ... How can we achieve more? How can we do it better? How can we help you reach your goals? The real winner is the student-athlete. This environment inspires greatness and encourages excellence. It does so with an eye on compassion and friendliness, qualities that have defined this university and the state of Oklahoma.

COACHING STAFF

I don’t believe there is a better situation in all of college football than the one that has been created right here in Norman. There is an unmistakable energy and yet a comfortable pace that co-exist on this campus. It is that atmosphere that allows us each year to strive for college football’s highest goals, to prepare for that next championship. We know that success here is judged by championships and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Situated on the east side of the Norman campus, this historical facility is the largest sports arena in the state and, following its recent expansion, now ranks among the 15 largest on-campus facilities in the nation.

Oklahoma opens the season against BYU in the Dallas Cowboys’ new stadium. A trip to Miami is also on the non-conference schedule with the 104th OU-Texas game slated for the Cotton Bowl. Big 12 foes Baylor, Kansas State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State visit Norman while OU travels to Kansas, Nebraska and Texas Tech.

Some called the return of OU’s NFL draft eligible prospects on of Bob Stoops biggest recruiting wins. Those players are among 43 letterwinners returning in 2009. Of that group, 26 have starting experience including 11 who registered double-digit starts in 2008.

Identifying and recruiting talent, coaching talent to play at its peak and preparing players for life after college, whether it be football or in the business world, nobody does it better than head coach Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma coaching staff.

When a team has 27 starters returning, it’s safe to say it has its fair share of top-notch talent stockpiled. A quick look at the preseason honors list confirms that. With a senior class that has only played in BCS bowl games and owns three Big 12 titles, the current group of Sooners knows what it takes to reach the pinnacle of the sport.

Those who update record books were kept busy last year, on both the program and NCAA levels, as Oklahoma compiled the most points ever in a season, 716. The explosive offense coupled with a daunting defense was the recipe for a third straight Big 12 Championship and a trip to the Fed Ex BCS National Championship.

SOONER TRADITION History is one tough customer at Oklahoma. The tradition, so rich and so long-standing, is as daunting as it is impressive. To be among the best at Oklahoma is to be among the best in college football. Review complete statistics, award winners, player honors, letterwinners, bowl game tradition and NFL Sooners.

SEASON BY SEASON The 2009 season will mark the 115th season of intercollegiate football at OU. The Sooners were playing football 12 years before Oklahoma became a state. Rarely has a football program and commonwealth enjoyed a more harmonious relationship that what exists in the Sooner state.

Great college football and the Oklahoma Sooners. For as long as anyone can remember, the two have been one and the same. Unlike some schools where tradition represents ancient history or others where it harkens back only a few years, Oklahoma’s tradition is a constant accomplishment unfettered by eras or time.

Bowl Championships

Some of the greatest players in college football history have worn the Crimson and Cream. The University of Oklahoma has averaged more than one All-American per year since it began playing football in 1895. To date, OU players have earned the prestigious honor 148 times. Five Sooners have been awarded the Heisman Trophy, including quarterback Sam Bradford in 2008, quarterback Jason White in 2003, running back Billy Sims in 1978 and running back Steve Owens in 1969. Running back Billy Vessels was OU’s first Heisman winner in 1952.

What have you done for me lately? In Oklahoma’s case, plenty. This is one of the hottest programs in all of sports. Oklahoma has played in four national championship games over the last nine seasons, owns six Big 12 championships during that time and has played in all four of the BCS games. OU also has turned out a list of award winners and draft picks so long that it taxes even the best memory to name them all.

Greatness begets greatness and there has been plenty of that in Norman lately. Now, from all corners of the country, the best players come to join a program of traditional success that is riding one of its biggest waves.

Imagine every game of your college career televised for family and friends back home. To a Sooner, that’s no dream; it’s reality. Every one of the past 85 OU football games have been on TV. Thanks to ABC, ESPN and Fox Sports Net millions of viewers tune in to see Oklahoma on a regular basis. Everyone loves a winner and the Sooners have been just that under head coach Bob Stoops. But OU’s success has driven ratings since the program’s first televised game in 1952. In all, the Sooners have played 277 games on TV. This is the center of the college football world and the television cameras are never far away.

Stoops Era Attendance Exceeds Four Million THE SOONERS

Since Bob Stoops became the head coach in 1999, Oklahoma has drawn 4,584,109 fans to Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Never has Sooner football been more popular with its rabid following. Stoops’ winning ways, which have yielded 60 victories in 62 home games, stoked the Sooner nation and have led to the expansion of OU’s stadium by 9,347 seats. Even so, attendance has exceeded the listed capacity of 82,112 in 36 consecutive games.

SEASON REVIEW

In 2008, Oklahoma set records for average season attendance (85,075) and single game attendance (85,646). Both are typical of what has happened here in recent years. The top nine seasons for OU home attendance have taken place since Stoops arrived.

Stoops Leads Oklahoma to Seventh Title In a 2000 season so richly laced with great moments, the one for the ages came in the national title game, a 13-2 victory over Florida State in the Orange Bowl. It has been called by some the greatest defensive effort ever in a championship game. The national title season came just two years into Bob Stoops’ tenure and just two years removed from a sub-.500 season. Along the way, the Sooners had thrilling wins over Nebraska, Texas, Texas A&M and Kansas State (twice), with only one of those contests played at Owen Field in Norman. Headliners included QB Josh Heupel, who finished second in the Heisman voting, and big-play linebacker Torrance Marshall. The mark at the end of the season was an unblemished 13-0.

Nothing defines the competitive success of a college athletics program like a national championship. Oklahoma, with seven national titles sprinkled over four decades, is one of the very few programs that sets out each fall with the expectation and legitimate goal of pursuing the national crown. That pursuit rates as a lot more than just talk around here.

BOOMER S OONER

HEAD COACH BOB STOOPS

Oklahoma is Championship Football

The aura is unmistakable, and it radiates from real and repeated success on college football’s biggest stage. Oklahoma has claimed more national championships than any other Big 12 program. The Sooners under Bob Stoops earned the program’s most recent title in 2000 with an Orange Bowl victory over Florida State to cap an undefeated, 13-0 season. OU’s other championships came under Barry Switzer in 1985, 1975 and 1974, and Bud Wilkinson in 1956, 1955 and 1950.

Oklahoma has played for the BCS title four times during Stoops’ tenure.

BARRY SWI TZER

Barry Switzer led his Oklahoma teams to national championships in 1974, 1975 and 1985. He also won 12 Big Eight Conference championships and had eight bowl victories in 13 appearances. Switzer directed the Sooners on a 28-game win streak from 1973 (his first season as head coach) to 1975. When Oklahoma won the national championship in 1975, it marked the first time in history a team had won back-to-back titles more than once. In 1970, as an assistant, he convinced head coach Chuck Fairbanks to make the most significant and gutsy move in OU’s football history, a switch to the wishbone offense.

SEASON REVIEW

Head Coach Bud Wilkinson BUD W ILKINSON

Oklahoma’s 13th football coach produced teams that were 6-2 in postseason play, won the national championship in 1950, 1955 and 1956 and did not lose an astounding 74 straight conference games from 1946-1959 (72 wins, 2 ties). His teams still hold the modern record for consecutive wins by a FBS school with 47 straight victories from 19531957. After the 1947 season, the Sooners won 12 straight conference championships. In 17 seasons at Oklahoma, Wilkinson fostered racial integration and graduated players at an 87.2 percentage rate while becoming the eighth winningest coach in FBS history.

No Team Has More Big 12 Titles Oklahoma won its first conference championship in 1915 and has since tacked on another 41. In other words, the Sooners average a conference title just about every two seasons. That same pace has carried through the Bob Stoops era with six league crowns in 10 years. That feat merits considerable respect. Under the Big 12 format, teams must first win a divisional crown over five opponents before advancing to meet the other divisional winner at a neutral site.

The most recent of OU’s six came in 2008 when the Sooners handled Big 12 North champion Missouri, 62-21, at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The Sooners’ other Big 12 crowns came in 2007 (38-17 over Missouri in San Antonio), 2006 (21-7 over Nebraska at Kansas City), 2004 (42-3 over Colorado at Kansas City), 2002 (29-7 over Colorado at Houston) and 2000 (27-24 over Kansas State at Kansas City).

ADRIAN PETERSON

If it’s a college football season, the likelihood is that more than one Sooner ranks among the best players in the land. That was true in 1913 when OU produced its first All-American and it’s true today when the rate of additions is so rapid that the total now outnumbers the age of the program itself. One of college football’s greatest programs has been built by some of college football’s finest players. That’s the natural result when talent meets coaching at a program with eye-popping facilities and great visibility.

University of Oklahoma players have earned consensus All-America honors 67 times in the program’s history. No other school in the Big 12 Conference has produced more consensus All-Americans. What is a consensus All-American? The NCAA officially recognizes selections from five All-America teams: The Sporting News, AP, AFCA, FWAA and Walter Camp. A player is designated a consensus All-American if he is a first team selection on at least three of the five teams.

Eighteen Winners in Last Nine Seasons For many years, college football has paused at the end of each season to recognize its finest players. The award names like Heisman, Outland, Thorpe and Butkus are woven into the fabric of the game as a tribute to the past and a beacon for the present. The awards ceremonies attract the greatest names in the game, and of course, they attract and honor Oklahoma Sooners. The road to the bright lights, podium and acceptance speech starts with great talent and hard work, common staples at OU. The Sooner program then provides the national stage on which players can be seen. The result has been an impressive collection of hardware.

Players with the ability and drive to make the NFL flourish at Oklahoma and leave here equipped to play football beyond their college days.

The league. Pro ball. The next level. It is the dream of every college football player. It is reality for many Oklahoma Sooners. Few programs in the country attract talent and prepare it to move on better than Oklahoma. Five Sooners were tabbed in the 2009 NFL Draft alone, giving Bob Stoops a total of 41 of his former Sooners drafted into the league. OU plays pro schemes, has two coaches who had lengthy NFL careers and employs a rigorous strength and conditioning program that is so effective that many of those who have gone on to professional careers come back to Norman in the offseason to continue their training.

“They get quality athletes and give them a chance to make plays. Plus, they do a great job of coaching at Oklahoma. That program has a tremendous amount of pride. They’ve won a lot of big games. And that type of atmosphere usually rubs off on the players.” - Eric DeCosta Director of College Scouting, Baltimore Ravens

HISTORY

“They do a tremendous job at Oklahoma. Players who come out of that program are well-equipped from a mental and physical standpoint. They do a really good job of coaching and Jerry Schmidt does a wonderful job developing the players.” -Gil Brandt NFL.com; Former Director of Player Personnel, Dallas Cowboys “Playing at Oklahoma really prepared me to play in the NFL and to be versatile because in this league you have to be able to block, catch, run and block some more. Coming from Oklahoma, you realize that the world is yours and that you can accomplish anything.” - J.D. Runnels Fullback, Chicago Bears

24 BOWL CHAMPIONSHIPS At a school where the bowl history is laced with games of historical significance, the last few years have represented another fabulous roll for the Schooner. Four times in the last nine seasons, the Sooners have played for the national championship, seven times they have been in BCS bowls and in eight seasons they played in January games. OU enjoys favored status among the bowl community, mostly for its tradition, but also for its fan following. Some 50,000 ventured to the Rose, Sugar, Orange and Fiesta Bowls over the last few seasons. Regardless of the location, Sooner fans flock to follow a bowl tradition that is as fresh as it is historic. Head coach Bob Stoops has taken all 10 of his Oklahoma teams to bowl games during his tenure in Norman. Of the 10 games, four were National Championship bouts, seven were BCS bowl games and eight were in January. The Sooners and their fans have enjoyed trips to Phoenix, San Diego, Miami, Pasadena, New Orleans and Dallas while playing in some of the most prestigious bowls in college football.

Storied Rivalry at Cotton Bowl in October The Oklahoma-Texas game, played each season at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, a location approximately halfway between the two campuses, is one of the country’s most spectacular sporting events. Staged during the State Fair of Texas, the contest is witnessed by a crowd perfectly defined by color – half crimson, half burnt orange – in an atmosphere that is arguably more unique than that found at any other game. This rivalry is one that marks time and gives players and fans alike experiences for a lifetime.

The Tunnel Experience “From the top of The Tunnel that leads into the floor of the Cotton Bowl it looks like no big deal. All you can see is end zone. Then you start running and the world explodes around you. Your eardrums are pounded by the screams of 75,587 people and the blasts of the modified 12-gauge shotguns that the OU Ruf/Nek spirit group carries... “You feel the world shake and start to understand why every Longhorn or Sooner who has taken these steps before you can never seem to find the exact words necessary to convey what has just happened. “You’ve just run down the tunnel at the OU-Texas game -- generally regarded as one of the greatest moments a college football player can experience.” - Mark Wangrin, ESPN.com

The Sooners were competing on the gridiron before this grand land moved from territorial status to statehood. Few college programs are more ingrained in their surroundings than the one at OU. Game day at Oklahoma is about more than 80,000 fans witnessing one of the most historic and vibrant programs in college football at one of the game’s truly great cathedrals.

Preparation Meets Opportunity It would be hard to imagine a football program doing more over the last six years to enhance its facilities than OU. The $111 million expansion and enhancement of Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium is perhaps the most noticeable upgrade, but it is simply the lead project in a plan that has impacted every facet of Sooner football. A new locker room, a new indoor training facility, a new weight training facility, a new practice field, roughly 8,000 new seats and 60 new stadium suites are testaments to OU’s dedication to providing the best for its student-athletes. Preparation routinely meets opportunity at Oklahoma. It does so largely because the Sooners have what they need to succeed.

Four regulation-size practice fields are available to the Sooners right outside their locker room: Owen Field, two grass fields plus an artificial turf field with sand pit. The ceiling inside the Everest Training Facility hangs a full 65 feet above the SafePlay Synthetic Turf surface. This allows for all kicking and throwing drills during practice. Oklahoma recently completed a $70 million stadium expansion and enhancement project that added nearly 9,500 seats. On those rare days that the weather forces Oklahoma to practice indoors, the Sooners can move to the 74,000square-foot Everest Indoor Training Facility.

Championship Strength & Conditioning The best testimony for the impact Jerry Schmidt and his staff have on Oklahoma football players comes from former Oklahoma players -- those in professional football. It’s not uncommon for members of that select fraternity to return to Norman for part of their offseason training regimen. During their time in the Sooner program, they learned the quality of the strength and conditioning program. Schmidt has been involved with three national football championships at three different schools. His success is no coincidence. Now in his 11th year at OU, he is recognized nationally as one of the best in the business, and the athletics department has surrounded him with facilities that give Sooner student-athletes the best opportunity to excel.

3 5 24 38 41

Jerry Schmidt has coached with teams that played in six national championship games. He has three national title rings from Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Florida. Schmidt has worked with five Heisman winners, including Sam Bradford (Oklahoma), Jason White (Oklahoma), Danny Wuerffel (Florida), Barry Sanders (Oklahoma State) and Tim Brown (Notre Dame). Schmidt has coached 24 NFL first-round picks including OU’s Adrian Peterson, Davin Joseph, Jammal Brown, Mark Clayton, Tommie Harris, Andre Woolfolk and Roy Williams. No. 38 for the Cincinnati Bengals and former Sooner standout, Roy Williams, donated $100,000 to establish a new weight room in Oklahoma’s Everest Training Facility. During Schmidt’s tenure in Norman, 41 Sooners have been selected in the NFL Draft including eight first-round picks, 2007 NFL Rookie of the Year, Adrian Peterson, the latest.

The Best in the Business “Jerry Schmidt is Oklahoma’s Director of Sports Enhancement. He worked under Tom Osborne at Nebraska, Lou Holtz at Notre Dame and Steve Spurrier at Florida, where he became buddies with the Gators’ then-defensive coordinator, Bob Stoops.

HISTORY

“Schmidt made sure that Stoops’ players were big and fast. Insiders will tell you he’s probably the best in the business. The Sooners have played for three national titles since 2000. “Almost to a man, the Sooners looked like they were cut out of marble. There were no guts hanging over belts. There were no skinny arms or pear-shaped frames. They were as soft as petrified trees. These guys looked like well-conditioned athletes.” - Ted Miller, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 2005

And that balance creates opportunity for some of the best-known names in all of college football. It is common to see the ball in the hands of 10-15 players during a game. Many stay involved to the detriment of none.

Pass oriented? You could make that case. Numerous records for both passing and receiving have fallen over the last few years. Run oriented? Maybe. After all, the single season rushing mark was set in 2004. Pass oriented? The single season passing mark was set in 2008. Well, which is it, passing or running? At Oklahoma, the answer is both. While most schools dream of balance, OU is balance. In 2008, the Sooners passed for the school record 4,891 yards while rushing for 2,779 yards.

Under Coach Bob Stoops, the Oklahoma offense, with its pro influence and varied formations, has produced:

Outstanding players have dominated the landscape. Twice in the last nine years, a Sooner has been named the best defensive player in the nation.

Oklahoma’s defense suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. With a takeaway in 118 of Bob Stoops’ 133 games and 32 interception or fumble returns for touchdowns during this coach’s tenure, the defense has a reputation of, well, being a little offensive. The Sooners’ attack-style defense, long appreciated for its speed and aggressive attitude, is perhaps best known for its consistency. OU has ranked among the top 16 teams in the nation in total defense for seven of the last nine years.

Bob Stoops’ commitment to special teams performance is evidenced by the number of first-team players who participate on those units. The wisdom of that move, and the program’s overall devotion to special teams play, is found in the staggering numbers that relate to every possible facet of the kicking and return games.

“In a sport in which icons are dropping annually from sight, and phenoms are forever heading to the NFL, Stoops is the closest thing to a budding legend in the NCAA.” - John Romano, St. Petersburg Times “Bob Stoops is one of the first guys in the coaching profession that has ability to mix family along with coaching. About 15 years ago, you couldn’t do that. People thought that was the wrong thing to do. So I admire coach Stoops in that every time I talk to him, something about family comes up. You have three kids to raise, a wife to take care of and a football team to coach. In that order.” - Urban Meyer, Head Coach, University of Florida “Stoops’ philosophy is at the same time unbending and liberating. He presides over players who are competitive and aggressive, but also respectful and talkative.” - David Barron, Houston Chronicle

COVERING THE SOONERS Credential Requests

Requests for media credentials for University of Oklahoma home games should be made online at SoonerSportsMedia.com. Only those requests submitted by the sports editor of a newspaper or the sports director for a radio or television station will be considered.

Credential requests for Oklahoma football season will only be accepted online at SoonerSportsMedia.com. Please visit the web site for complete instructions on submitting the online application form.

Priority is given to daily newspapers (by circulation), television stations and radio stations that program sports for more than half of their daily broadcast schedules. A credential does not guarantee a seat and access to the team bench area is prohibited at all times. Credentials include:

Sideline: Primary recipients are photographers. Only photographers on assignment for accredited publications (not web sites) will be afforded credentials. Pass only gains access to the sideline (not the press box).

Season Credentials Requests should be made at SoonerSportsMedia.com by August 14. Only those media who routinely cover OU games, practices and media conferences are eligible for season credentials.

Single-Game Credentials Requests must be made at least one week in advance of the contest. Any organization that requests a single-game credential then does not use it will not be granted another pass for the remainder of the season. No credentials will be granted after Thursday of game week.

Credential Pickup (OU Home Games) Credentials may be picked up from the media relations office during the week or from media will call (Gate 2) at Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on game day beginning three hours before kickoff (see map on page 55). Photo identification is required for pickup. Each media representative must claim his or her pass. No group pickups are allowed.

Media Luncheon at 11:30 a.m., at the stadium. Coach Stoops’ comments, beginning at noon, available via telephone to media only (contact Athletics Media Relations for more information). A few players also are available. All coaches and offensive players* who do not participate in the luncheon are available following practice. Wednesday: Coaching staff available following practice. No player availability. Thursday, Friday & Sunday: No availability. Saturday: Post-game availability only. Members of the OU Athletics Media Relations staff will escort media representatives to the appropriate locker room areas with five minutes remaining in the game. The Oklahoma locker room, home or away, is closed to the media at all times. Head coach Bob Stoops and several Sooner players will be brought to a designated interview area. At home games, that area is the Big Red Room, located in the Switzer Center (first floor). At the beginning of the fourth quarter, interview requests will be collected. For games in Norman, the opposing head coach will meet with the media inside the opponent interview room, the SoonerVision studio (southwest corner, under the stadium grandstands). A representative from the OU Media Relations Office will be on hand to assist the media in finding this area. Interviews with the head coach and players from the visiting team will be based on the post-game policy of that institution. * Some players have evening classes that could preclude them from post-practice interviews.

HISTORY

Texas will serve as the host school this year. Any media not based in Oklahoma or Texas should contact UT for credentials. OU-Texas credentials will be distributed to local media at the Tuesday media luncheon in Norman. Any credentials not claimed that day will be available the Friday before the game at a pickup location in Dallas (times and exact location TBA). No credentials will be mailed, but outlets willing to provide an overnight account number no later than Wednesday of game week may receive them in that manner.

Tuesday: All coaches^ and defensive players* are available following practice.

SEASON REVIEW

OU-Texas Credentials Those interested in covering the annual Oklahoma-Texas game at Dallas will need to make a separate request for credentials. Each school handles the requests from its regular pool of media. Aside from national media, only season credential holders are eligible.

Monday: Bob Stoops participates on the Big 12’s Weekly Teleconference at 10:10 a.m.

THE SOONERS

Any media member who loses a season credential will automatically be moved to the single-game list for the following season. Media outlets who cannot provide names for passes for an entire season will be placed on the single-game list and should provide names on a weekly basis.

Daily Media Availability COACHING STAFF

Combination: These are only for those individuals who require access to the press box and the sideline. Few are issued.

Parking Passes Parking passes are in a limited supply and will be prioritized similar to the way credentials are issued.

2009 Season Outlook Signing Day Times Two

The calendar read January, yet the moment felt so much like February that the question made perfect sense. Bob Stoops had just announced that Sam Bradford, Jermaine Gresham, Gerald McCoy and Trent Williams were bypassing the NFL Draft to remain in school when a reporter asked, “Bob, have you ever had a better signing day than this?” The Oklahoma coach smiled at the irony of the question, looked at the ceiling and said, “No, I guess not.” No indeed. Rare are the days, whether they come during February’s national signing period or not, when a coach knowingly retains the services of a Heisman Trophy winner, three All-Americans and four All-Big 12 players. But more than playing accolades, Stoops knew that the group of four also represented a pair of team captains (Bradford and McCoy) and the cornerstone on which a team can be built.

58 2009 OKLAHOMA FOOTBALL GUIDE

* SOONERSPORTS.COM

Now the Sooners look toward 2009 with a good chunk of its Big 12 Championship and BCS title game team still intact. New faces will be introduced along the offensive line, at wide receiver and in the secondary, but those are manageable holes, the kind often opened by graduation. That turnover was anticipated and recruiting and playing time were allocated in such a way as to mitigate them. At all of those positions, younger players are poised to step forward. The stage is set then for Oklahoma, the only program to win back-toback Big 12 crowns, to shoot for an amazing fourth in a row while also battling for its fifth BCS Championship Game appearance in Stoops’ 11 seasons.


The Offense

The fullback position is strong with Matt Clapp and Brody Eldridge, both of whom have been All-Big 12. Marshall Musil, a player similar in style and stature, is a true freshman with promise.

For the glass-half-empty folks, the talk with focus on the offensive line and wide receiver, and even the negative Nellies can be forgiven for such musings.

Still, the glass-half-full crowd will point to the likes of Bradford, Chris Brown, Ryan Broyles, Matt Clapp, Gresham, Williams and a bevy of running backs and wonder why anyone would worry.

Receivers

Oklahoma lost a couple of fixtures in Juaquin Iglesias and Manuel Johnson, who, by catches, finished No. 2 and No. 9, respectively, in career receptions at OU.

The 2008 offense was arguably the most potent in the history of college football and it would be hard to expect that standard early in the season. Still, there is a reasonable expectation that those who return can play at an even higher level and that those who will assume more prominent roles are gifted enough to put up another set of big numbers.

Quarterbacks

In the slot, elusive Ryan Broyles returns. It is not out of the question that Broyles could move to the outside. The coaching staff has indicated that Madu will see time in the slot as well after a sucessful spring at the position.

First-year Sooners will be counted on to step in and provide depth at the guard position right away as junior college product Tavaris Jeffries and freshmen Tyler Evans and Josh Aladenoye will be counted on in the two deep.

Newcomers at receiver include junior college transfer Cameron Kenney and high school product Jaz Reynolds.

The center position presents another opportunity. The Sooners are faced with the prospect of replacing four-year starter Jon Cooper. There is no way the team can match that kind of experience, but freshman Ben Habern is a bright prospect. Colorado State transfer Brian Lepak brings smarts and depth to the position as well.

The tight end position is in capable hands with Jermaine Gresham, the pre-season favorite for the Mackey Award, Brody Eldridge, junior Erik Mensik and sophomores Trent Ratterree and James Hanna. Incoming freshman Gabe Ikard joins the team in the fall.

Offensive Line

With four starters, all of whom were invited to the NFL Combine, gone, there will be an overhaul across Oklahoma’s offensive line.

The only other scholarship quarterback on the roster will be true freshman Drew Allen, who enrolled at OU in January.

Running Backs

Bringing back one 1,000-yard rusher is nice. Bringing back two is unheard of, but that is precisely the situation at Oklahoma.

SEASON REVIEW

The cornerstone is tackle Trent Williams. An All-Big 12 player at right tackle last season, he will move to the left side for the 2009 season. He was considered by some the top performer on last year’s offensive line. Look for Donald Stephenson and newcomer Jeff Vinson to compete at that position.

There is no disputing the quality and experience that the Sooners lost from their offensive line. Those players were part of two, and in some cases, three Big 12 Championships. The mitigating factor is the quality of what remains to step forward. The coaching staff likes the current cast and the opportunity for another bumper season.

THE SOONERS

Gone is Joey Halzle, who was in that role for the last two seasons, but back is Landry Jones, who redshirted last season. Jones’ attributes aren’t totally unlike those of Bradford and coaches will look to get him snaps as opportunities present themselves.

COACHING STAFF

Sam Bradford returns as one of the most accurate quarterbacks ever to play the college game. He’ll spend the off-season honing his ability to read defenses while also looking to add strength and weight. Otherwise, the Sooners will focus on Bradford’s backups.

The right guard spot could wind up in good hands, literally. Stephen Good played sparingly last season as a true freshman and has been projected as a bright prospect since the day he signed.

2 0 0 9 S EAS ON

That means the Sooners will look to new faces at the outside positions. Candidates include juniors Brandon Caleb and Adron Tennell and sophomores Dejuan Miller and Jameel Owens. The latter two were part of a decorated receiver recruiting class in 2008.

At left guard, OU is looking to replace two-time All-American Duke Robinson. Brian Simmons, who made two starts last season while recording a bevy of playing time, should be capable at the spot. The coaches hold Simmons in very high regard and view him as a returning starter in some ways due to his immense amount of playing time.

BOOMER S OONER

With four starters gone from the line and two at receiver, they are positions worth watching.

At Williams’ vacated tackle spot, Cory Brandon has the early edge at the starting spot with LSU transfer Jarvis Jones providing backup.

DeMarco Murray spent most of the season as the team’s top rusher, but was injured on the opening kickoff of the Big 12 Championship game and did not play again. He finished with 1,002 rushing yards, but was eclipsed over those final two games by Chris Brown, who ended the season at 1,220.

HISTORY

The return of those two alone would be enough to keep most coaching staffs happy, but Oklahoma also returns its No. 3 rusher from a year ago in Mossis Madu, who piled up 475 yards and six touchdowns. The trio will be joined by redshirt freshman Jermie Calhoun and true freshman Jonathan Miller.

Alexander was more than up to the task and now returns for his sophomore season pushing to maintain a starting job. English is back too, along with two-year starter Jeremy Beal to make this a well-stocked position in both experience and talent.

With the introduction of several new starters and injuries to key players, it would be safe to acknowledge that 2008 had its share of growing pains on the defensive side of the ball. Likewise, it’s impossible to deny the improvement. By the time the season ended, the unit had rounded into one of team’s strengths, so much so that the defense is one of the reasons Oklahoma is again forecasted as a top five team for the 2009 campaign. Replacements must be found for departed safeties Nic Harris and Lendy Holmes, but otherwise the group returns largely intact. The headliners include All-American tackle Gerald McCoy, 2008 Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year Auston English and record-setting linebacker Travis Lewis, who broke Brian Bosworth’s OU freshman record for tackles while claiming a team-high four interceptions. Oklahoma’s defense is fast and opportunistic. It’s also much deeper than it was at this time last season.

Defensive Line

An injury to English wound up a blessing in disguise when it forced Oklahoma to get Frank Alexander to the field quicker and more frequently than had been anticipated.

Others to watch are David King and R.J. Washington, who redshirted last season. The signing class also was replete with ends including Jarrett Brown and Justin Chaisson. There is an expectation that Oklahoma will be capable of exerting considerable pressure off the edge. Of course, the same may be true up the middle with a talented corps of defensive tackles. The ring leader is All-American McCoy, who will be a leading contender for both the Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy.

The incoming freshman class includes an outstanding prospect in Jemarkus McFarland. Oklahoma has been rock solid at the defensive tackle position for some time and there is no indication of anything less in ‘09. The same can really be said for the entire defensive front.

Linebackers

Injuries forced OU to go deep into a thin linebacker corps last season. The return of seven players along with a stellar signing class, helps to address the situation. The Sooners will still feature young depth and will be looking to sign another strong class when much of this group departs after the ‘09 season. Still, the immediate prospects are much improved.

His running mate last season, Adrian Taylor, also returns. From there, the tackle positions are less certain. Cory Bennett graduated and DeMarcus Granger had back surgery, so half of the four-man rotation is either gone or somewhat questionable.

Ryan Reynolds and Austin Box are both returning from season-ending injuries, but figure to be full-go by the time the season kicks off. Reynolds and senior Mike Balogun are likely to hold down the middle, while Box is a probable on either the strong or weak side.

Cordero Moore got snaps at tackle last season and he returns along with redshirt freshmen Stacy McGee and Casey Walker.

On the strong side, Keenan Clayton is the returning starter. The former safety proved a valuable commodity as he worked in a nickel role in passing situations. He’ll be pushed by J.R. Bryant.

Defensive Backs

Dominique Franks returns at field corner with Brian Jackson working the boundary. Players like Jamell Fleming, Jonathan Nelson and Lamar Harris will look to challenge for playing time.

Quinton Carter played extensively and is a likely candidate at one of the spots with Sam Proctor at the other. Those providing depth at the safety spots include true freshman Javon Harris, redshirt freshman Joseph Ibiloye, Desmond Jackson and Emmanuel Jones.

Kicker

Jimmy Stevens handled the placements last season and returns in 2009, but will be pushed by redshirt freshman Tress Way and freshman walk-on Bryce Easley. Another who could enter the fray is Cameron Kenney, the junior college transfer wide receiver. He also is likely to be considered at punter.

Punter

Mike Knall wrapped up his second and final full year as the team’s punter last season so the job is open. Way, Easley and Kenney will be among those trying to secure this spot.

At punt returner, Ryan Broyles and Dominique Franks, who combined for 30 of the Sooners’ 32 punt returns last season, are back. Broyles will likely get the bulk of the assignment.

Deep Snapper

Three players handled the duties last year and all three are back. Derek Shaw is the most experienced, but Ben Hampton, who has been used primarily on placements, and James Winchester also have experience.

Holder

Carter Whitson returns after filling the role admirably last season. The wide receiver was sure-handed and remains athletic enough to provide options.

Returners

HISTORY

The class of incoming defensive backs is strong enough that several of those players may find their way onto the field. The list includes safeties Kevin Brent and Harris and corners Gabe Lynn, Marcus Trice and Demontre Hurst, the latter of who may also work at safety.

For the most part, the special teams will have a familiar look with a number of returning players counted among the ranks. That does not mean, however, that there will not be substantial competition for playing time.

SEASON REVIEW

Both safeties, Nic Harris and Lendy Holmes, exhausted their eligibility last season so the Sooners will have new faces on the back end.

The Special Teams

Still, there are a number of very qualified returners. DeMarco Murray has proved dynamic in the role and Chris Brown has been used some, too. It’s safe to assume that other candidates will be reviewed as well, and if history serves as a guide, Oklahoma will have a fast and elusive tandem doing the work.

THE SOONERS

Both OU corners were new to full-time starting roles in 2008, but they performed remarkably well and now set up the Sooner defense to be strong on the outside in ‘09.

The physical maturity and overall skill of the newcomers lend themselves to a quick adjustment period.

COACHING STAFF

On the weak side, All-America candidate Lewis is back after an outstanding freshman season. Others to watch include junior Brandon Crow and freshmen Daniel Franklin, Jaydan Bird, Gus Jones, Ronnell Lewis and Tom Wort.

With the end of Juaquin Iglesias’ career so ends the exploits of one of the school’s great returners. He finished with more kickoff return yards than anyone in OU history.

Oklahoma will play its fourth consecutive 12-game regular-season schedule in 2009, hosting six of those contests in Norman. Highlighting the nonconference slate is a neutral site clash against BYU in the first ever collegiate football game in the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium and the Sooners’ first trip to Florida to take on the Hurricanes since 1987. The matchup with Texas at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas is set for the third Saturday in October while the Bedlam Game against Oklahoma State remains over the Thanksgiving weekend. Oklahoma travels to north to face long-time rival Nebraska in Lincoln, Neb., for the first time since 2005 and returns to Lawrence, Kan., for the first time since 2001 after facing the Jayhawks in Kansas City in 2005.

HEAD COACH

Bob Stoops Head Coach | 11th Season | 109-24 (.820) Record at Oklahoma

History is one tough customer at Oklahoma. The tradition, so rich and so long-standing, is as daunting as it is impressive. To be among the best at Oklahoma is to be among the best in college football... Such dramatics are lost on Bob Stoops. The Sooner head coach befriended the would-be albatross of OU’s successful past from his first day on campus and remains steadfastly focused on tomorrow and the championship it holds. It falls then to long-time observers and experts of the game to define Stoops’ impact. Rarely have the pundits had it so easy.

That was true again in 2008. Stoops became the first coach in Big 12 history to capture three straight conference titles (after becoming the first to win two in a row in 2007) and was one of several teams, in a year of parity, to contend for the national title. It was the highest scoring team in the modern era of college football with more than 700 points and, despite the full or part-time loss of key starters on the defensive unit, still managed to rank among the top three in nearly every Big 12 category on that side of the ball. That potent offense yielded Stoops’ fifth Heisman Trophy finalist and second winner, quarterback Sam Bradford. Also during the ‘08 campaign, Stoops reached 100 wins for his career, and did so faster than any coach since before 1905. In 10 seasons under Stoops, OU has won 109 games; the 2000 national championship; spent 140 weeks in the national rankings; played in 10 bowl games, seven of the BCS variety; taken part in four national championship games and captured six Big 12 crowns. On a playing field leveled by scholarship limits and parity, this era stares down the Oklahoma standard and does not blink. The brilliance dulls the memory of what Stoops inherited. When he arrived in Norman, the proud Sooner program was five years removed from a winning record, four from a postseason appearance. Those atypical days of angst are so forgotten now that they might as well be mentioned with the Land Rush and Dust Bowl. Stoops has been characterized as a grounded family man, big-game coach, relentless recruiter, strong leader and a person with uncommon perspective.

His success emanates from a disciplined style true to his roots in the Steel Valley of Ohio, but he is far from inflexible. The principles to which he holds are the tried and true axioms of the sport … mixed with cutting-edge strategy and an appreciation for the calculated risk. During his time, OU has produced record-setting passers and receivers, seven 1,000-yard rushers, suffocating defense and special teams units that rank among the most dynamic in the land. The Sooners have been nothing if not versatile. The son of a coach, Stoops was a four-year starter at Iowa. He began his coaching career in 1983 as a volunteer in the Hawkeye program under Hayden Fry, working through the ranks until he became co-defensive coordinator at Kansas State (1991-95). There he played a key role in one of the most impressive turnarounds in college football history while serving on Bill Snyder’s staff. Eventually, he left for Florida and a three-year stint as Steve Spurrier’s defensive coordinator. In 1996, he was part of a national championship team. It was with the Gators that the spotlight found Stoops and made him one of the hottest names in the profession. His hiring at Oklahoma was one for the ages.

Coaching Accomplishments

• Stoops is 109-24 overall, 72-14 vs. the Big 12, 39-10 vs. the Big 12 South, 33-4 vs. the Big 12 North, 6-1 in the Big 12 title game, 37-10 vs. non-conference opponents, 60-2 at home, 32-11 on the road, 17-11 on neutral fields, 33-12 vs. ranked opponents, 4-6 in bowls, 3-5 in January bowls and 2-5 in BCS games. • OU has set or tied more than 180 school records under Stoops, not including bowl bests and marks specific to a particular position (i.e., receptions by a running back). Among those marks under Stoops are passing for a game, season and career; receiving for a game, season and career; and rushing for a season.

Coaching Honors • Stoops has authored two of the seven longest winning streaks in Oklahoma history. His 2000 and 2001 teams won 20 straight, while the 2002 and 2003 teams reeled off 14 in a row. Those victories all came against I-A opponents. • Oklahoma owns the nation’s longest home field winning streak at 24. That’s the second longest streak in school history, just one behind a 25-in-a-row string that ended in 1953. Stoops also has fashioned two other streaks of 19 straight.

• OU has held a double-digit lead in 112 of Stoops’ 133 games. • Oklahoma has played in 10 bowl games. Never had an OU coach taken even his first three teams to bowls. Prior to Stoops’ arrival, OU had not played in one of what is now a BCS game since the 1988 Orange Bowl (1987 season). Stoops, in his second season, led OU to the 2001 Orange Bowl (2000 season).

OU Football Then and Now

• Under Stoops, OU has produced 29 All-Americans; two AP Players of the Year (Heupel, White); two Nagurski Award winners (Williams, Derrick Strait); two Thorpe Award winners (Williams, Strait); two Butkus Award winners (Rocky Calmus, Teddy Lehman); one Bednarik Award winner (Lehman); one Lombardi Award winner (Tommie Harris); one Walter Camp winner (Heupel); three O’Brien Award winners (Sam Bradford and White twice); a Maxwell Award winner (White); a Unitas Award winner (White); an Outland Trophy winner (Jammal Brown) and one Mosi Tatupu Award winner (J.T. Thatcher). • OU has had a Butkus finalist in four of the last eight years and a Lombardi finalist in three of the last six. The Sooners also have had finalists for the Biletnikoff, Groza, Guy, Hendricks, Mackey and Doak Walker awards.

HISTORY

1950

• The 2008 season started out looking like a dream defensive end lineup. OU had the 2008 Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year in Auston English on one end and sophomore phenom Jeremy Beal at the other end. Three games into the season English was out with an injury, freshman Frank Alexander stepped in and the Sooner ends remained effective. Beal went on to achieve All-Big 12 honors as he led the defense in sacks (8.5) and tackles for a loss (15.5).

• Coached on the Illinois State squad that captured the Gateway Conference title and advanced to the NCAA Division I-AA semifinals in 1999. That season marked the only time that the Redbirds accomplished those feats.

2009 SIGNING CLASS

120

With a record six Big 12 Championships, a national title, a bowl appearance in each of his 10 seasons and seven stops at BCS games during Bob Stoops’ tenure, it’s more than coincidental that Oklahoma also produces well on signing day. The OU head coach and his staff have apparently done so again, attracting a class that is roundly regarded among the top 10 in the nation. A total of 23 prospects inked letters of intent during the Sooners’ signing period. The new Sooners represent a cross section of positions with five defensive backs, four linebackers and offensive linemen, two each at defensive end and wide receiver and one each at quarterback, tight end, defensive tackle, full back and running back. Three of the signees hail from the junior college ranks while the other 20 are coming from high school. Five of those, linebackers Jayden Bird, Ronnell Lewis and Tom Wort, quarterback Drew Allen and defensive back Javon Harris, enrolled at OU at the beginning of January to join in conditioning workouts and spring workouts.

Texas produced the most signees for OU with 11 followed by Oklahoma with five, Kansas with two and one each from Georgia, Missouri, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

ROSTER NOTES

Nationwide Brand

Seventeen states from across the U.S. are represented on the 2009 Oklahoma roster. It’s nothing new to have athletes from across the nation land in Norman with such a well-known brand of football taking place each Saturday. In fact, 29 states have appeared on Oklahoma rosters during the Stoops’ era, stretching from California to New York.

Big & Small

For the third year in a row, the tallest and heaviest categories will be led by an offensive tackle from the junior college ranks. Jeff Vinson, at 6-8, 350, takes over the vacated spot of sun blotter from Phil Loadholt, now a member of the Minnesota Vikings. On the opposite end of the size spectrum, kicker Jimmy Stevens did enough in the off season to hold on to his billing as the shortest (5-6) and the lightest (165) member of the team.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma scored touchdowns on its first seven possessions and overwhelmed Tennessee-Chattanooga in the season opener for both teams, 57-2. It was 50-0 at halftime when lightning forced a one-hour, 12-minute delay. Chris Brown ran for three touchdowns, but the Sooners also threw for three as Quentin Chaney, Manuel Johnson and Juaquin Iglesias all caught passes for TDs. DeMarco Murray, who also scored once, led all rushers with 15 tries for 124 yards. QB Sam Bradford played sparingly, but still completed 17-of22 passes for 183 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. The visiting Mocs mustered just 36 yards of total offense and two first downs against an OU defense that registered five sacks. Oklahoma would have posted a shutout if not for an errant punt snap that resulted in a safety. DE Auston English registered four tackles for loss and two and one-half sacks for OU, while CB Dominique Franks knocked down three passes. Score by Quarters CHATTANOOGA (0-1) Oklahoma (1-0)

NORMAN, Okla. -- Sam Bradford established career highs for completions, attempts and yards, while tying his top performance for touchdown passes, as Oklahoma routed Cincinnati, 52-26. The OU quarterback completed 29-of-38 passes for 395 yards and five touchdowns. Among his favorite targets was redshirt freshman Ryan Broyles, who enjoyed the best debut game ever for a Sooner receiver when he caught seven passes for 141 yards. One of those resulted in Oklahoma’s first touchdown. OU jumped to a 14-0 lead and was ahead all day. The offense moved at will, running up 30 first downs and 197 rushing yards. The defense played better than the score indicated. Cincinnati’s offense scored only two touchdowns before it tacked on another on the game’s final play. The other Bearcat score came on a kickoff return. Score by Quarters Cincinnati (1-1) Oklahoma (2-0)

SEATTLE -- Playing before a national television audience on ESPN, Oklahoma overwhelmed Washington in every facet to claim a 55-14 victory. Just one week earlier, the Huskies had dropped a heart-breaking 28-27 verdict to No. 15 BYU. The Sooners established a physical running game early to set up the pinpoint passing of quarterback Sam Bradford. Both Chris Brown (107) and DeMarco Murray (100) hit the 100-yard mark on the ground, while Bradford completed 18-of-21 passes for 304 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. The Oklahoma defense was equally dominant, shutting out the Huskies until the 5:37 mark of the third period. Prior to that play, OU had amassed a 41-0 lead. CB Brian Jackson led the defensive unit with two fumble recoveries, one fumble forced and five tackles. At the end of the day, Oklahoma had 591 total yards with 274 on the ground and 317 through the air. UW finished with 336 yards, 95 in the fourth quarter.

DALLAS -- Texas rallied from an 11-point, first-half deficit to defeat Oklahoma in the 103rd Red River Rivalry, 45-35. OU had sprinted to a 21-10 lead when Texas’ Jordan Shipley returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. Later, the Sooners lost MLB Ryan Reynolds, the Big 12’s fourth-leading tackler, to a knee injury, and the Longhorns completed their rally. The 80 combined points represented the highest scoring total in the history of the series. OU quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 387 yards and five touchdowns, the best totals by any player in series history, but it wasn’t enough as the Sooners gave up 161 yards on the ground and 277 through the air. The crowd of 92,182 in the remodeled and expanded Cotton Bowl was the largest ever to see an Oklahoma game.

WACO, Texas -- Seventy seconds into its first possession, Oklahoma was in the end zone. And so it went as the Sooners, playing for the first time during the season with the nation’s No. 1 ranking, flattened Baylor, 49-17, in the Big 12 opener for both teams. The Sooners scored on their first four possessions and their 28 first-quarter points tied for their second-highest one-quarter scoring total by OU against a Big 12 foe. So complete was the domination that the first six OU touchdowns were scored by six different players. Sam Bradford completed 23-of-31 passes for 372 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for one score. In addition, OU rolled up 217 yards on the ground, led by DeMarco Murray, who had 96 yards and two touchdowns on 26 attempts. The Sooners held the upstart Bears 17 points and 160 total yards under their averages.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Sam Bradford threw for a career-high 411 yards and Manuel Johnson set an Oklahoma record with 206 receiving yards as the No. 2-ranked Sooners sprinted past TCU, 35-10. The Horned Frogs loaded up against the run, and limited OU to just 25 yards on 36 attempts, but opened themselves up to a flurry of big passing plays. After finding Juaquin Iglesias for a 24-yard touchdown on OU’s first possession, Bradford threw three straight TDs to Johnson on plays covering 76, 55 and 63 yards. Johnson became just the second player in school history to record three scoring plays of 55+ yards in one game (tying Antonio Perkins). Oklahoma shredded the nation’s No. 1-ranked defense for 436 total yards and Bradford threw at least four touchdown passes in a third consecutive game. Meanwhile, the Sooner defense stymied a TCU team that was averaging 43.0 points per game by forcing four turnovers, two fumbles and two interceptions. The Horned Frogs did not get a touchdown until the fourth quarter. The victory extended Oklahoma’s home winning streak to 21 games, a figure that tied the second longest home streak in school history.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Four hours and 1,165 yards after the game started, Oklahoma knocked off No. 16 Kansas, 45-31. Two OU school records fell in the process as Sam Bradford threw for 468 yards and Juaquin Iglesias caught 12 passes. But the passing game was only part of the story. OU also ran for 206 yards with Chris Brown getting 92 and Demarco Murray 83. For the first time this season, the Sooners did not score on their first drive when a partially blocked field goal missed, but they did score on the second and never trailed. Nic Harris made his first career start at middle linebacker, vacating a strong safety position that was filled by first-time starter Quinton Carter. The latter led OU with 10 tackles. Lendy Holmes added a pair of interceptions and Auston English a pair of sacks.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Oklahoma set a record for most points scored in the first half of a game in rolling past Kansas State, 58-35. OU led 55-28 at halftime and the second frame was a mere formality. The Sooners ran at will, piling up 273 yards on the ground, 142 from Chris Brown and 104 from DeMarco Murray. Kansas State put up 550 total yards, including 486 through the air, but was victimized by five turnovers and two sacks. Travis Lewis had two interceptions. Oklahoma raced to a 28-7 lead, but KSU rallied to tie the game at 28. From there, the Sooners reeled off 27 unanswered points to settle the issue. In that string, Ryan Broyles returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown, the first special teams TD of the season.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma sprinted to a 35-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in trouncing Nebraska, 62-28. Sam Bradford threw five touchdown passes for the sixth time in his career and the fourth time this season, and DeMarco Murray ran for a pair of scores while catching another and logging 201 all-purpose yards. As dominant as the offense was, it was the defense that ignited the onslaught. After OU scored on its opening drive for the eighth time in nine games, CB Dominique Franks intercepted a pass on Nebraska’s first snap and ran 18 yards for a TD. It was one of three first-quarter takeaways logged by the Sooner defense. Travis Lewis had a team-high nine tackles for OU. Score by Quarters nebraska (5-2, 2-3) Oklahoma (8-1, 4-1)

NORMAN, Okla. -- The tight battle that was anticipated never materialized as Oklahoma disposed of Texas Tech quickly and convincingly, 65-21. The Sooners led 28-0 before the Red Raiders scored, and the contest was never in question. Sam Bradford was efficient, completing 14-of-19 passes for 306 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. His TD throws went to four different receivers and six different Sooners scored in the game. Oklahoma also rushed for 299 yards with DeMarco Murray (125) and Chris Brown (108) both gaining more than 100 yards. The OU defense rendered Tech QB Graham Harrell ineffective by sacking him four times and forcing three turnovers.

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma handed its in-state rival its first home loss of the season by notching a 61-41 triumph. Sam Bradford was 30-of-44 for 370 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed four times for 16 yards and another TD. Not bad for a guy who suffered ligament damage in his left hand during OU’s third offensive series. Jermaine Gresham had nine catches for a career-high 158 yards and two TDs. OU had 187 yards on the ground, including 98 and two TDs from Chris Brown. On defense, Dominque Franks’ interception led to OU’s first score, and Frank Alexander got a two-point play when he returned a fumble on an OSU conversion try.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas. -- Oklahoma finished just three yards from perfect offensive balance in pounding Texas A&M, 66-28. The Sooners ran for 328 yards and threw for 325 in scoring the most points ever by an opponent on Kyle Field. DeMarco Murray had 123 rushing yards on seven carries, an average of 17.6 per try, while Chris Brown picked up 117 on 13 attempts with three touchdowns. Through the air, Sam Bradford completed 22-of-33 passes for 320 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. His favorite target was Murray, who had a career-high seven receptions. The Sooner defense stymied the Aggies, allowing just 26 rushing yards on 29 attempts and limiting the A&M passing game to 22-of-51 with two interceptions.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Oklahoma made its case for a berth in the national title game with a 62-21 romp over Missouri in the Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship. It was the third straight league crown for OU and its sixth since the Big 12 was formed. Both rate as bests among conference members. The issue was decided early as the Sooners raced to a 38-7 halftime lead. Chris Brown and Mossis Madu each ran for more than 100 yards as Sam Bradford made a final push for the Heisman with 384 passing yards to go along with two touchdowns on 34-of-49 passing. Juaquin Iglesias had nine catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Brown led all ballcarriers with 122 yards followed by Madu with 114. When Madu scored the game’s final touchdown, the ‘08 Sooners became the first team in NCAA history to eclipse 60 points in five straight games. Lendy Holmes and Brian Jackson each picked off Missouri QB Chase Daniel while Jackson also recovered a Daniel fumble.

To lure the Sooners to Miami, the Orange Bowl director circled the Norman campus, leaving chalk messages that promoted the game. Tennessee’s powerful ground attack was too much for the Sooners, winners of 14 straight, as the Volunteers raced to a 17-0 victory in the fifth annual Orange Bowl. The victory was the 13th straight for the Vols, who were coached by Major Bob Neyland. The game was considered to be the roughest of all bowl games played that year as both teams combined for more than 200 yards in penalties.

Statistics Leaders Rushing: OU - Golding, 12-91 NCSU - Palmer, 10-70 Game Summary In a game that featured two of the marquee names in college football at the time, Oklahoma blasted North Carolina State 34-13 before an overflowing crowd of 10,000 in the second annual Gator Bowl. The Sooners did not take long to get on the scoreboard, two minutes to be exact, on an Eddie Davis one-yard plunge. N.C. State roared back to even the score, but OU put the game out of reach by scoring 20 second-quarter points and coasted from there. The marquee matchup was made possible because of the Tournament of Roses committee decision to match representatives of the Western Athletic Conference (now the Pac Ten) and the Big Nine, (now the Big 10). This agreement made it possible for teams not waiting for a possible Rose Bowl berth to be picked by the Gator Bowl committee.

Oklahoma upset the ‘Heels with the big play coming in the first quarter as linebacker Myrle Greathouse intercepted a pass and returned it 70 yards to set up Jack Mitchell’s one-yard run. The Sooners never trailed after that.

Game Summary OU won its first national championship by going a perfect 10-0 in the regular season. However, Kentucky, coached by Paul “Bear” Bryant, upset the Sooners and broke a 31-game OU winning streak. OU lost a bowl-record five fumbles in falling behind 13-0. A fourth quarter 17-yard TD pass by Billy Vessels narrowed the margin but a come-from-behind effort was foiled by an interception in the final minute of play.

Maryland came into the game as the regular season national champion with OU rated fourth. Twice, the Terrapins had first down with the ball inside the 10-yard line, and both times the Sooner defense refused to allow any points on the scoreboard. Sooner tailback Larry Grigg scored the only TD of the game with a 25-yard scamper in the second period. The 1954 bowl game was the first bowl game in which the players had to play both ways. Sooner hero Grigg also played defensive back.

SEASON REVIEW

Game Summary Wilkinson’s team was rated second in the nation and it was the first one of his squads to post an undefeated record, 10-0. The game was one-sided and still stands as the largest margin of victory in OU bowl history. One of the many Sooner big plays was Leon Heath’s OU bowl record-breaking 86-yard TD run. The game was marred by an early-week incident where a former LSU player was caught spying on Sooner practices. It was the only time in Wilkinson’s career that he publicly blasted an opponent.

The Sooners, a perfect 10-0 and in the midst of their 47-game winning streak, trailed 6-0 at the half. The Sooners went into their famous “fast break offense” in the second half and scored three times to post their second Orange Bowl victory. It was the second national championship for Oklahoma.

Duke, the ACC winner, was unranked. Oklahoma got only six first downs, lost the total offense battle (328 yards to 279) and picked up an OU bowl-record 165 yards in penalties, but used two interception returns for TD, including an OU bowl record 94-yarder from David Baker, two fumble recoveries, a blocked punt and a bad snap from center to win going away. The 48 points marked an all-time OU bowl record that stood until matched by the ‘91 Gator Bowl team.

The Sooners were led by Prentice Gautt who scored the game’s first TD on the second play of the game with a 42-yard run. Gautt averaged an OU bowl-record 15.7-yards every time he touched the ball. It was the Sooners’ fourth straight Orange Bowl victory. Oklahoma ended the season ranked fifth in the nation, its only loss a one-pointer to Texas.

Although a slight underdog to the Vols, OU broke out to a 19-0 halftime lead. Tennessee came back to narrow the Sooner lead to 19-17 before Oklahoma defensive back Bob Stephenson picked off a pass and raced 24 yards to give OU an all important insurance TD. The Sooners desperately needed the insurance when Dewey Warren plowed in from a yard out. The Volunteers then missed a potential game-winning field goal as the gun went off.

HISTORY

Game Summary Florida State used a sophisticated passing attack to win easily. To add insult to injury, four of the Seminoles’ TD passes were thrown on fourth-down plays. Four Oklahoma players had been found ineligible the night before the game because they had signed pro contracts which was in violation of NCAA rules. FSU wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff finished the game with 13 receptions for 192 yards and four TDs.

SEASON REVIEW

Game Summary It was Bud Wilkinson’s last bowl game. Paul “Bear” Bryant, coaching his alma mater, repeated his victory as the coach at Kentucky in the 1951 Sugar Bowl with a 17-0 triumph. LB Lee Roy Jordan, the MVP, and quarterback Joe Namath led the Crimson Tide to the victory. The Sooners had first and goal twice in the first half, but fumbles ended OU’s chances and the Sooners never really threatened again. The lone highlight for the Oklahoma team was a visit by President John F. Kennedy to the Sooners’ locker room. Although President Kennedy claimed neutrality, it was obvious by the grimace on his face he was backing the Oklahoma team.

OU, without injured QB Bob Warmack, narrowed the margin to one on a pass from Mickey Ripley, but missed a two-point conversion for the lead. One last chance came after recovering an onside kick but a field goal attempt from inside the SMU 30-yard line went wide as time expired.

Game Summary The emergence of the wishbone and Greg Pruitt were late-season developments that propelled OU to four wins in its last five games and a postseason invitation. The Sooners had switched to the wishbone and they were running it to perfection by the time the bowl game rolled around. The “bone” produced 349 yards rushing and touchdown runs of 58 and 25 yards by All-American Greg Pruitt, but the Sooners still needed a late field goal by Bruce Derr to forge the tie with the Crimson Tide.

Auburn featured Heisman Trophy winner Pat Sullivan. It was run versus pass, with OU’s runners prevailing. The Sooners roared to a 31-0 halftime lead and amassed 439 yards rushing by game’s end, a new Oklahoma and Sugar Bowl record. QB Jack Mildren, playing in the final game of his brilliant college career, scored a Sugar Bowl record three times. OU finished second in the polls to Nebraska with another Big Eight team, Colorado, finishing third.

The Sooners led 27-0 at the third quarter mark before the reserves added two more scores in the fourth period. OU did not punt the entire game, the only time in Sooner bowl history that had happened.

SEASON REVIEW

Game Summary Played for the first time on New Year’s Eve, the Sugar Bowl brought the Big Eight Champion Sooners to do battle with Joe Paterno’s fifthranked Nittany Lions. The Sooner defense posted a shutout while allowing only 11 first downs and 49 yards rushing the entire game. It was the first year that freshmen were eligible and Sooner wide receiver Tinker Owens celebrated with five catches, good for 132 yards and one touchdown. It was also the last game for Sooner head coach Chuck Fairbanks who left for the NFL the following spring.

Game Summary It was Oklahoma’s first bowl trip under legendary head coach Barry Switzer and a storybook setting. Ohio State, the No. 1-ranked team in the country, had lost in the Rose Bowl earlier in the afternoon. The upset gave the Sooners an opportunity to win the national championship if they could beat the Michigan Wolverines coached by Bo Schembechler. A 39-yard end around by Billy Brooks and a nine-yard keeper by Steve Davis were enough for a 14-6 victory and a fifth national championship.

Game Summary Called by Barry Switzer, “the most disappointing loss of my career,” OU was a victim of one of the biggest upsets in bowl history. When Notre Dame downed Texas in the Cotton Bowl, OU was in the running for a national championship. A big win over Arkansas might impress the voters and secure the crown for the Sooners. As a result, Switzer went against his own strategy by choosing to receive the opening kickoff rather than play defense. OU fumbled inside its own 10 on the third play of the game and Arkansas immediately scored for a lead it never relinquished.

The Sooners, ranked No. 1 with one loss, had lost a heartbreaker to the Cornhuskers, 17-14, on a late fumble at the NU three-yard line. When the Huskers were upset the following week by Missouri, producing a Big Eight Championship tie, the Orange Bowl officials came up with the idea of a rematch, much to the Sooners’ joy and the Huskers’ shock. It went as predicted: an Oklahoma victory.

After the Seminoles took a 7-0 first-quarter lead, OU unleashed 17 second-quarter points to take the lead for good. J.C. Watts was named Orange Bowl MVP on offense. He scored on a 61-yard option play and rushed for more than 100 yards. Bud Hebert, who recorded three interceptions, earned the award on defense. Billy Sims wrapped up his brilliant collegiate career scoring on a 22-yard pitch from Watts. Oklahoma finished third in the country and won the Orange Bowl for the third time in five tries under Switzer. The Seminoles crossed midfield only two times after the first quarter and never passed the 35-yard line.

Dupree ran wild early, amassing 239 yards before recurrent leg injuries forced him out in the third quarter. The turning point came when Oklahoma punter Michael Keeling could not get his punt away and was forced to throw an illegal pass. The Devils took over at the OU 43 and later scored when Darryl Clack raced 15 yards for at TD.

HISTORY

Game Summary A season that produced four losses for Oklahoma ended on a bright note with an easier than anticipated 40-14 victory over Houston. MVP Darrell Shepard, who began his career at the UH, scored two touchdowns against his former team. The Sooners scored 30 fourthquarter points to turn a seat squirmer into a rout. Freshman Fred Sims rolled up 181 yards rushing in the game after rushing for just 179 in the regular season.

Game Summary This contest featured a rematch with a great deal more excitement as OU turned to a foreign weapon, the pass, to notch its third straight Orange Bowl win. QB J.C. Watts was chosen MVP and with good reason. The Seminoles used a fourth-quarter TD to break a 10-10 tie and seemingly gain control. OU was forced to start deep in its own territory after the kickoff with little time left. Watts went to work and passed the Sooners to the 11-yard line where he hit Steve Rhodes with a TD strike to pull the Sooners to within one with less than a minute to go. Watts then proceeded to hit tight end Forrest Valora for the two-point conversion that gave the Sooners their ninth Orange Bowl victory, including three in the last four years. Oklahoma finished ranked No. 3 in the nation.

A win over a fine Husky team would solidify that claim. However, Washington refused to cooperate and turned a 17-14 fourthquarter deficit into a 28-17 triumph. The game was marked by a bizarre incident when, after an Oklahoma field goal, the Sooner Schooner raced onto the field as called for by tradition. The only problem was the drivers apparently had not received the proper permission for the trip. The team was penalized 15 yards and the loss of the three points.

Butkus Award winner Brian Bosworth had 13 solo tackles and the Oklahoma secondary picked off four Penn State passes to thwart any rallies. Tim Lashar booted an Orange Bowl record four field goals to give the Sooners an early lead. Lydell Carr and Keith Jackson then provided big plays, a 61-yard jaunt by Carr and a 71-yard pass play from Jamelle Holieway to Jackson.

His totals included a 77-yard TD to give OU the early 7-0 lead. Todd Thomsen set an Orange Bowl record with five punts for a 47.6-yard average.

Gundy was 25-of-31, including 11 straight completions, for 329 yards and two TDs. The Sooners scored touchdowns on four of their first five possessions to put the game out of reach before halftime. The OU defense never allowed the Cavaliers inside the 20. The 48 points tied the OU bowl game record (48-21 over Duke in the ‘58 Orange Bowl).

HISTORY

Game Summary The Sooners’ hopes of winning their seventh national championship were put to rest by Miami, 20-14. The Hurricanes took the opening kickoff and moved 65 yards in eight plays for a 7-0 lead, then never looked back. The Sooner offense, which led the nation in six categories, was held to only 179 rushing yards and 255 overall. Late in the fourth quarter, the Sooners scored on a 29-yard fumblerooski which gave the Oklahoma faithful a flicker of hope. The Hurricane defenders blew it out when they sacked quarterback Charles Thompson and caused a fumble to ensure the victory.

Game Summary After a dry three quarters and the score deadlocked at 6-6, Clemson held off a late Sooner rally to post a 13-6 victory and give the ACC its first victory over the Sooners in 16 tries. On the Sooners’ last possession, OU took the ball over on its own 20 with 2:59 left on the clock. QB Jamelle Holieway, playing in his final game, scampered 11 yards on a fourth down to keep the drive alive. Holieway then completed passes of five, seven, four, 12, seven, 12 and 13 yards, to get OU inside the Tiger 14 with 12 seconds remaining. Two desperation heaves by Holieway dropped incomplete to end all Oklahoma hopes.

The Sooners scored the first two times they had the ball. Another Gundy TD pass boosted the lead to 21-3. Just over a minute later, the game MVP hit again and Oklahoma was cruising at halftime 28-3. Meanwhile, the nation’s second-leading rusher was held to just 95 yards by the Sooner defense.

Game Summary After completing its worst regular season in 30 years, and playing under a head coach who had resigned, Oklahoma ended its season with a dismal 31-6 loss. The Sooners started reserve QB Terence Brown, who had completed one of three passes on the season. Season starter Garrick McGee had contracted spinal meningitis and was unable to play. OU’s defense surrendered 485 yards and four touchdowns through the air. BYU’s John Walsh set Copper Bowl records for completions (31) and TD passes (4). Sooner linebacker Broderick Simpson was Defensive Player of the Game with 13 tackles, a sack and a broken up pass.

OU’s defense logged six sacks and two interceptions to set the tone. Rose Bowl MVP Nate Hybl tossed two TD passes and Quentin Griffin rushed for 144 yards as the OU offense wore down the Cougars. Oklahoma became just the fourth school in college football history to win the four BCS games and the Cotton Bowl.

HISTORY

1950

Game Summary Arkansas’ defense played well, but few will remember. Oklahoma’s defense was that much better. The final statistics were as chilling and stark as the weather. The Razorbacks, who reached OU territory just two times the entire game, could muster only 13 passing yards on two completions while their rushing attempts (42) outnumbered their rushing yards (37). Sooner defenders tied a school and Cotton Bowl record with a whopping nine sacks. Late in the first quarter, Oklahoma set sail on a 13-play, 63-yard scoring drive that culminated in a oneyard sneak by quarterback Nate Hybl. Along the way, the Sooners converted two third downs and one fourth. The resulting touchdown and PAT made the rest of the afternoon academic. OU added a 32-yard field goal by Tim Duncan in the third frame to build a 10-0 advantage that felt like twice that given the play of the defense. Arkansas, aided by penalties, finally scratched out a field goal, but no serious threat to the outcome was ever mounted.

SEASON REVIEW

Game Summary Top-ranked Oklahoma used a smothering defense to shut down the third-ranked Seminoles and Josh Heupel generated enough offense to lead OU to a perfect season. As the nation’s only unbeaten team, the Sooners were the unanimous winners of the AP media poll. They were automatically crowned national champions in the coaches’ poll under the Bowl Championship Series format. Led by Orange Bowl MVP Torrance Marshall, the Sooners time and again forced Florida State’s Chris Weinke into bad decisions. Tim Duncan kicked two field goals and Quentin Griffin scored the clinching touchdown on a 10-yard run up the middle with 8:30 to play. Florida State avoided its first shutout in 12 seasons when Stanford Samuels tackled OU punter Jeff Ferguson in the end zone for a safety with 55 seconds remaining.

Oklahoma entered the game as the naton’s top scoring offense, but struggled against the Tigers. The OU defense gave a good account too, surrendering 64 of LSU’s 312 total yards on a non-scoring run on the Tigers’ first snap. Still, it was the LSU defenders who stole the show. DE Marcus Spears returned an interception 20 yards for a TD on the first series of the second half and seemingly opened the floodgates. But OU stiffened and got its running game untracked. After pulling within seven at 21-14, the Sooners made another push to the LSU 12, but missed on four straight pass attempts, the last one with just 2:46 left. The crowd was the largest ever to see a sporting event in the Louisiana Superdome.

1950

Game Summary Playing in their third national title game in six years, the No. 1-ranked Oklahoma Sooners were upset in their opponent’s backyard as the No. 2 Florida Gators prevailed, 24-14. Tied at halftime, Florida outscored Oklahoma 17-7 in the second half despite the 110-yard rushing effort by Chris Brown and the 256 yards of passing from Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford. Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham led all receivers with eight catches, including two for TDs. OU was unable to overcome two costly stops inside the 10-yard line and two interceptions that were initally touched by Oklahoma receivers.

1969* HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER * STEVE OWENS

Billy “Curly” Vessels was the man who started it all. The first Sooner to win college football’s most prestigious individual achievement award, Vessels led the Sooners to a 26-4-1 record during his tenure.

Oklahoma’s Steve Owens was a 6-2, 215-pound powerhouse from Miami, Okla., who ravaged defenses from 1967-69, setting four conference records of the day.

The 1950 Sooners, under the direction of head coach Bud Wilkinson, went 10-1 to give the Sooners their first of seven national championships. As a sophomore, Vessels started on the 1950 squad, scoring 15 touchdowns.

OU’s workhorse carried the ball 358 times in 1969 for 1,523 yards while scoring 23 touchdowns (another school record). Playing on a 1969 squad that had been hurt badly by graduation in 1968, Owens carried the load for the Sooner offense.

But Vessels’ most successful individual season came during his senior campaign when he won the Heisman Trophy. Vessels rushed for 1,072 yards on 167 carries and scored 17 touchdowns. Creating a new meaning for the word “versatile,” the Cleveland, Okla., slasher was part of every phase of the Sooner offensive attack. Vessels was even a threat from above. “Curly” connected on seven passes for two touchdowns in 1952. The 1952 Sooners went 8-1-1, finishing fourth in the nation, and won Oklahoma’s ninth conference title. OU opened with a 21-21 tie with Colorado and then reeled off five straight wins, averaging 46 points a game. OU dropped a 27-21 decision to Notre Dame and then finished strong by sweeping the last three games. In 1953, Vessels turned pro for the Edmonton Eskimos and won the Schenley Award as the top player in Canada. Vessels then served as an officer in the U.S. Army. Vessels was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1974. CAREER statistics Year Att Yds 1950 152 938 1951 27 143 1952 167 1,072 Totals 346 2,153

Owens had two 200-plus yard games while leading the Sooners to a 6-4 season. Spurred by Owens’ effort, Oklahoma averaged 28.5 points a game in 1969. The great career of Steve Owens left a mark on the OU record book. Owens holds five Sooner records. He is the school’s all-time leading scorer with 57 touchdowns during his career. Owens holds the record for the most carries in a game (55) and career (958). He finished his career with 4,041 yards on the ground, the third most in school history. Detroit drafted Owens in the first round. He was the first Lion to gain over 1,000 yards in a season and was an All-Pro selection in 1971 and 1972. In 1991, Owens was named to the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame and was the Walter Camp Foundation Alumnus of the Year. Owens was inducted into the Orange Bowl Hall of Honor in 1992.

2003 * HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER * JASON WHITE

Billy Sims, a 6-0, 205-pound running back from Hooks, Texas, swept through defenses like a tornado flying across the Oklahoma landscape.

OU quarterback Jason White became the trigger man for the country’s most potent offensive attack. At a school where the points have flowed like an Oklahoma gusher, White led the OU team that outscored all of its predecessors (601 total points).

He set a Big Eight single-season rushing record in 1978 with 1,896 yards on 256 carries. Sims led the nation in rushing, averaging more than 7.0 yards per carry. He topped the 200-yard mark in four different games (a school best) during the 1978 season.

The Sooners rolled over Texas and the first five games of the conference schedule heading into the Nebraska game. Sims ran for 153 yards, but it was not enough as the Sooners fell, 17-14.

Sims is second in the OU record books for rushing yards in a season (1,896), most 200-yard games in a season (4) and a career (7). He finished his career with 4,118 yards and stands first on the all-time rushing list. Rec 0 0 0 1 1 2

The outpouring of recognition was impressive. White captured player of the year honors from the Associated Press, Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News and CNNSI.com. He also won the Davey O’Brien Award and the Jim Thorpe Courage Award.

THE SOONERS

OU responded by clubbing Oklahoma State, 62-7, and then was rematched with the Cornhuskers in the Orange Bowl. OU edged Nebraska 31-24 in the second meeting between the top-10 schools.

White set school records for touchdown passes in a season (40) and game (5, twice). His season passing total ranked No. 2 at OU. He was No. 4 nationally in touchdown percentage (8.87), No. 7 in passing efficiency (158.11), No. 18 in interception percentage (2.22) and No. 22 in total offense (264.0).

COACHING STAFF

Sims led the Sooners to an 11-1 record, Orange Bowl championship and third-place finish in the final poll. OU opened with a 35-29 win over Stanford and then crushed West Virginia and Rice by a combined score of 118-17.

He did so with uncanny accuracy, especially on deep throws, and a touchdown to interception ratio (four to one), so gaudy that it read like a typographical error.

OU All-Americans Since 2000 Oklahoma players have earned All-America honors 28 times during head coach Bob Stoops’ 10-year tenure in Norman (an average of nearly three per year). The total includes 14 players from the defense, 12 players on offense and two from special teams. From Josh Heupel and J.T. Thatcher in 2000 to Sam Bradford, Jermaine Gresham, Gerald McCoy and Duke Robinson in 2008, Stoops has coached an athlete into earning All-America status every year but 2005.

2008 * HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER * SAM BRADFORD As the leader of the most potent and highest scoring offense in NCAA history, 716 points, Sam Bradford rewrote the Oklahoma record books on a continual basis throughout the 2008 season while lighting up scoreboards like an employee of General Electric. Known for his poise in the pocket and pinpoint accuracy, Bradford posted one of best ever touchdown-to-interception ratios, 6.25-to-1, in the history of college football. When the dust had settled on the 2008 season, Bradford led the nation in passing efficiency and touchdowns, was No. 3 nationally in passing yards, set the Oklahoma season records for yards, touchdowns, passing efficiency, 200-yard games, 300-yard games, and 400-yard games along with breaking the career record for TD passes.

During that span, 14 Sooners have been named consensus All-Americans on 18 occasions. Six Sooners have received multiple All-America honors under Stoops’ watch. Jammal Brown, Rocky Calmus, Tommie Harris, Teddy Lehman, Duke Robinson and Roy Williams have each garnered the honor twice in their respective careers. Stoops’ most fruitful year? 2003. Seven Sooners were hand picked to All-America teams, five earned consensus honors. Generally considered the most loaded squad at OU under Stoops, the 2003 group marked the largest pack of All-Americans since 1975 when eight OU athletes were named All-Americans, including three consensus All-Americans. Showing versatility, players at OU under Stoops have earned All-America honors at every position except kicker.

Bradford threw for at least four touchdown passes in eight games, tossing five scoring strikes in four different games. In addition, Bradford surpassed Florida’s Rex Grossman with the most touchdowns through the freshman and sophomore years with 82. In one of the closest Heisman races in recent history, Bradford held off fellow quarterbacks Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow to become the fifth winner in program history. Bradford also brought home the Associated Press Player of the Year, Davey O’Brien, Sammy Baugh and Chic Harley awards while being named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year by the league coaches.

2008 * ALL-AMERICAN * JERMAINE GRESHAM * TE The first tight end to earn All-America honors under Bob Stoops, Jermaine Gresham turned in a record-setting season in 2008 when he was a finalist for the Mackey Award and a member of The Sporting News All-America team. A matchup nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators, Gresham had more TDs (14) and receiving yards (950) in a season than any other tight end in program history. Named first team All-Big 12 by the conference coaches, Gresham exceeded 90 yards in five games and five receptions in eight games. When the team needed it the most, Gresham performed, racking up 25 catches, 302 yards and four touchdowns in the final three games of the season. Year 2006 2007 2008 Total

2004* ALL-AMERICAN * DAN CODY * DE

The best season ever by a freshman? The argument could be made. Adrian Peterson set an NCAA freshman rushing record for most rushing yards with the third-highest figure in the nation for the season. He also eclipsed the OU standard for most rushing yards in a season.

Dan Cody was so destructive as a senior that OU coaches devised a special position for him. Cody, at times, stood up from his defensive end spot to play a spinner role. In that capacity, he roamed the defensive front and menaced opposing offenses. At season’s end, he had the top sack total in the Big 12 with 10 and a spot on the FWAA’s All-America team. Cody was a two-time finalist for the Hendricks Award who was noted for his all-out effort. At Texas A&M, he blacked out while exhorting teammates, then returned to the game.

On the awards circuit, Peterson had the highest finish ever by a freshman in the Heisman voting (second) and was the first freshman to be named a finalist for the Doak Walker Award. He was a consensus All-American. Peterson’s durability was surprising for a freshman. He led the nation with 339 rushing attempts and went over 100 yards in 11 of 13 games, including his debut. A thundering power back, he also had eight bursts of 35 yards or longer and 44 of 10 or more. Peterson broke three NCAA freshman rushing records: most consecutive 100-yard rushing games (9), most total 100-yard rushing games (11) and most rushing attempts by a freshman with 314. Year 2004

A two-time finalist for the Rimington Award as the nation’s top center, Vince Carter was a four-year fixture at Oklahoma. He was rewarded as a senior when he was named to the prestigious Walter Camp All-America team.

A dominating senior season led to Jammal Brown earning Oklahoma’s fourth Outland Trophy. He followed that up as a first-round pick (No. 13) by the New Orleans Saints.

The Waco, Texas, native stepped in as a freshman when Josh Smith went out with an injury in 2001 and went on to start at center for the Sooners for four seasons.

He did not allow a sack or hurry during the regular season while logging a team-best 130 knockdown blocks. At season’s end Brown was a consensus All-American.

He earned first team All-Big 12 Conference honors in 2003 and 2004.

As a junior, Brown had the highest line grade in a year when the offense had one of the most productive seasons in school history. The performance landed the Lawton native on the American Football Coaches Association’s first team All-America squad.

As a senior in 2004, Carter helped pave the way for running back Adrian Peterson and protected quarterback Jason White -- both Heisman Trophy finalists -- as the Sooners completed a second consecutive undefeated regular season and won the 2004 Big 12 Conference Championship.

Brown had 127 knockdowns and ran his string of consecutive starts to 28 during the season.


ALL-AMERICANS UNDER STOOPS Noted as one of the great stories of progress in OU history, Mark Clayton went from struggling to bench press 135 pounds in his first workout to twice being named an All-American. By the time his career was over, he held virtually every Sooner receiving record and was widely regarded as the best to ever play the position at the school.

Antonio Perkins became the nation’s most feared punt returner by re-writing the NCAA record book during his junior season. He set an NCAA mark with four returns for touchdowns on the season, including an NCAA record three against UCLA.

The returns were spectacular too, with lengths of 84, 74 and 65 against UCLA and 65 against Missouri. Perkins, who also started every game at cornerback and had two interceptions on the season, finished No. 20 in the nation in return average, but that figure was diluted by the fact that his 53 attempts out-distanced the rest of the country’s returners by at least eight.

After a wildly successful junior season, Clayton’s numbers dipped somewhat as a senior, but that was attributable to an improved runnin`g game and a deeper receiving corps. He still led OU in receptions and yards and was named the the AFCA All-America team. Moreover, when punt returner Antonio Perkins was injured, Clayton added that role and took back one for a touchdown at OSU. As a junior, Clayton built a reputation as perhaps the most elusive receiver in the nation with 533 yards after catch (YAC). He set OU standards with 83 receptions for 1,425 yards and broke the school mark for receiving yards in a game with 190 against Texas.

Tommie Harris rose to the pinnacle of his position in his junior season, which would be his last at OU. He departed for the NFL after just three years in Norman. As a junior, he continued to rocket into opposing backfields with his uncanny quickness. Harris had 10 tackles for loss and 19 quarterback hurries.

Determining the greatest linebacker in OU history is a tough chore. With Teddy Lehman in the mix, determining the fastest is much easier. That speed, which made him an outstanding high school sprinter, set the Sooner backer apart from his peers. He capped a brilliant career by winning the Butkus and Bednarik Awards after finishing as a finalist for each just one year earlier. His ability to get from sideline to sideline caught a lot of attention ... and ball carriers. As a senior, he had 117 tackles, including 19 for 47 yards in losses.

After finishing as a finalist for the Lombardi Award one year earlier, he won the coveted piece of hardware in his final Sooner season. He also was one of four finalists for the Nagurski Award, which went to teammate Derrick Strait. Harris’ sophomore season was impressive despite an injury. Slowed all by a groin pull suffered in August, Harris still faced regular double teams. He was named to three All-America squads and was named a finalist for the Bednarik Award.

2001 * ALL-AMERICAN * JEFF FERGUSON * P

Free safety Brandon Everage earned All-America honors after a stellar junior campaign in 2002.

Most punters are known for the length and/or the accuracy of their kicks. Jeff Ferguson was outstanding in both areas. But Ferguson separated himself with athletic ability and intelligent play that made him the complete player at his position. He ended his career as the school record holder for punting average in a career and became just the second player in school history to average more than 40 yards in each of his four seasons. The length of the kicks did not come at the expense of accuracy. Twenty-one of his 71 senior season punts were downed inside the 20-yard line. The thunderous punts and the balls that trickled dead deep in enemy territory will be secondary as time remembers Ferguson’s career, though. In his junior season, he made a brilliant play in the national championship game against Florida State, turning a bad snap into a safety rather than an opportunity for the Seminoles to get back into the game.

Six interceptions, with 107 yards in returns, would indicate that Everage understood the centerfield nature of his position. The 94 tackles, thirdhighest on the team, speak to the linebacker-like mentality with which the Oklahoma free safety played. It was that combination of abilities that landed Everage on the All-America rolls. Everage recorded 60 tackles in 2003 (44 solo) including four for loss and one sack. He also nabbed one interception with four passes broken up. Year UT 2000 27 2001 54 2002 65 2003 44 Totals 190

ALL-AMERICANS UNDER STOOPS By the time his career was over, Roy Williams was more feared by offensive opponents and more respected by his defensive peers than any player in the country.

Only a few players define their position, but that is precisely what Rocky Calmus meant to college football. As a senior, he won the Dick Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker, but also was a finalist for the Nagurski and Bednarik Awards as the nation’s best defender and the Lombardi Award as the country’s top interior player. His senior year total of 117 tackles vaulted him into Oklahoma’s top five career tacklers and capped an incredible career.

In his final season at Oklahoma, he won the Nagurski Award as the nation’s top defender and the Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. He was No. 7 in the Heisman Trophy voting, the highest finish of the year by a non-quarterback. Williams bypassed his senior season of eligibility to enter the NFL draft, but still left his mark on the OU record book. He was drafted in the first round (No. 8 pick overall) in the 2002 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. UT 57 58 73 188

The runner-up for the 2000 Heisman Trophy, Josh Heupel became Oklahoma’s first consensus All-America quarterback and the first Sooner QB to earn All-America honors since Jack Mildren in 1971.

A standout on both defense and special teams, J.T. Thatcher was named an All-American as both a defensive back and returner. The Mosi Tatupu Special Teams Player of the Year Award winner, Thatcher was one of only seven players to return two or more punts for a touchdown in 2000 and ranked ninth nationally in punt return average. A four-time Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week selection, Thatcher set OU’s single-game (160) and single-season (599) records for punt return yards. He also posted the second-highest single-game kickoff return yard total with 150, including a 93-yard return to set up OU’s go-ahead touchdown against second-ranked Kansas State. Thatcher was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award and tied school records for interceptions in a game (3) and season (8).

As team captain his two years with the Sooners, Heupel is largely credited with turning an offense that statistically ranked as one of the worst in the nation before his arrival into one of the most explosive in the country. Heupel was named Associated Press Player of the Year, Walter Camp Player of the Year, The Sporting News Player of the Year, CBS Sports Player of the Year, Big 12 Player of the Year and Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2000.

ALL-TIME ALL-AMERICANS oklahoma ALL-AMERICANS • During Bob Stoops’ tenure, Oklahoma has produced 28 All-Americans. Eighteen of the 28 were consensus picks. Before he arrived in Norman, the Sooners had not produced a consensus All-American since 1988. • Coach Stoops’ 28 All-Americans include 12 on offense, 14 on defense and two on special teams. They played 14 different positions. • The most total All-Americans in one season came in 1974 and 1975 when eight Sooners were so honored. There were seven during the 2003 season. • In 2003, Oklahoma set a record when six Sooners were named to the Football Writers’ (FWAA) All-America team. • Oklahoma had at least one All-American in 18 consecutive seasons from 1971-1988. There was also a 14-year stretch from 1946-1959. • Three sets of brothers have been All-Americans at OU: Lee Roy, Dewey and Lucious Selmon all earned the honor as did Steve and Tinker Owens and Buddy and Kurt Burris. • Seven Sooner All-Americans went on to serve as assistant coaches at OU: Leon Cross, Eddie Crowder, Frank “Pop” Ivy, Claude Reeds, J.D. Roberts, Lucious Selmon and Jackie Shipp.
